The first Bubble and Speak column by renowned fashion blogger Susie Bubble on Business of Fashion (BoF) features former Vauxhall Fashion Scout Merit Award Winner Leutton Postle.
The column is a space where Susie Lau focusses on emerging design talent and the Central St Martins graduate Sam Leutton and Jenny Postle - known in the fashion world as Leutton Postle - take the floor in her debut column.
The blog post develops an insight into Susie's feelings as she saw Jenny's graduate collection - before she had teamed with Sam -, "she was someone who could come into a fashion house and, for want of a better word, spice up textures by doing knitwear and textiles research", the fact that the design duo's collections are being showcased at Vauxhall Fashion Scout, "the duo have been showing their collections off-schedule, as part of the Vauxhall Fashion Scout initative, which goes to show that the British Fashion Council’s NewGen scheme doesn’t necessarily reflect the full breadth of talent that is currently active in London" and their most recent "most polished yet" collection, S/S13
A refreshing look into the talents of Leutton Postle, the post is accompanied by photographs of the said S/S13 show and Susie wearing their designs.
